Today we relocated a feral Mama Cat and her little kittens away from a very busy road. It was a huge test of patience. Especially with two little boys who wanted to cuddle with them. The Mama had let me pet her and kept giving me cues that she was ready to have them moved. After moving them one little rascal was certainly driving her crazy and reminded me of the bittersweet last days of nursing - that "oh my god I can't do this anymore"mixed with "ooh my cute little nugget how can I ever stop!" They are safely in my garage for the time being, and it has been amazing how creating a place of balance and peace is what attracts them closer to you when they are afraid. Well that...and a piece of string :).
